Learn how to escalate your privileges on Windows and Linux systems
This book is a comprehensive guide on the privilege escalation process for Windows and Linux systems and is designed to be practical and hands-on Author:providing the reader with real world exercises and scenarios in the form of vulnerable environments and virtual machines.
Learn how to perform local enumeration on Windows & Linux systems.
Understand the key differences between elevating privileges on Windows and Linux systems.
Learn how to identify privilege escalation vectors on Windows & Linux systems.
Learn how to elevate your privileges on Windows and Linux systems Author:leveraging various tools and techniques.
Privilege escalation is a vital element of the attack life cycle and is a major determinant in the overall success of a penetration test. The importance of privilege escalation in the penetration testing process cannot be overstated or overlooked. Developing your privilege escalation skills will mark you out as a good penetration tester. The ability to enumerate information from a target system and utilize this information to identify potential misconfigurations and vulnerabilities that can be exploited to elevate privileges is an essential skill set for any penetration tester.
The book uses virtual environments that you can download to test and run tools and techniques. Each chapter will feature an exploitation challenge in the form of pre-built virtual machines (VMs). As you progress, you will learn how to enumerate and exploit vulnerabilities on Linux or Windows systems in order to elevate your privileges.
Author:the end of this book, you will have gained the skills you need to be able to perform local enumeration in order to identify privilege escalation vectors on Windows and Linux systems and how to exploit them in order to elevate your privileges.
